"Okay I’m sorry I was mean, this is actually really cute." She shot him a grin over the candles as she picked at her burger. "I feel like I’m in Lady and the Tramp right now, but with burgers and cans of coke and ohmygod is that tirimasu?!"
"What will it take to shut you up about food?" Jack laughed, pointing his fork in her direction. She shrugged with a wink.
He cleared his throat lightly as Madeleine examined the table.
"Is that a cheeseburger?" She demanded, gesturing to the togo box. Jack scowled at her and cleared his throat once more, choosing to ignore the question.
With a hand pressed firmly against the small of her back, Jack successfully herded his girlfriend further down the alleyway, struggling to hide his excited grin. It had taken weeks of scrutinous planning, food orders and bargaining with Louis; the owner of the bar and the doorway that the rickety old table now blocked to arrange the evening. Jack didn’t regret a single second he’d spent on it now he saw the candlelit table that sat there; a marker that he’d placed in the exact spot where Madeleine had burst unexpectedly into his life and turned it upside down. He glanced at her and noticed a smile playing across her lips.
"Is that one of my grandmas curtains? Jack what the hell is going on?"
He rolled his eyes.
"Okay, now you’re literally just shitting over everything. I hate you, Madeleine James."
"Trust me, you really don’t mean literally."
"Shut up, nerd."

As Jack pulled the car up beside a familiar building, Maddie attempted to stifle a sentimental smile. She bit it back and went on the offensive.
"Oh my god… Jack!" She exclaimed, allowing him to open the car door for her as he took her hand to help her out. "You’ve definitely got some kind of a sick fetish for this place. I want out."
"Oh my god, Madeleine," he rolled his eyes and pulled her towards him, pressing a finger to her lips. "Will you shut up and stop ruining it? I’m trying to be romantic.”
"I don’t want your dad to hate me though, angel," Jack sighed as he slid into the drivers seat. Maddie rolled her eyes as she watched him.
"Who are you and what have you done with my boyfriend?" She whispered, leaning down and touching her lips to his. She felt his mouth spread into a smile beneath her own.
"You realize your dad is totally watching us out of the window and is probably readying his gun as we speak, right?"
Madeleine laughed lightly as she headed to the passenger door and slid into the seat beside him, instantly taking his hand in hers. “Don’t worry, J.” She grinned. “My mom won’t let him keep it in the house.”
Madeleine slammed the front door behind her and rolled her eyes at the sight of her father chatting animatedly to her boyfriend. Neither of them noticed her presence, but she was relieved to see that there was no evidence of any lingering awkwardness between the two of them. Sebastian was trailing his hand longingly along the paintwork of the convertible.
"Maddie! Jack is here!" Her mother’s sing song voice echoed up the flight of stairs as Madeleine pulled her jacket on hurriedly. The sooner she got Jack out of here, the less chance her father would have to corner him. Maddie rushed down the steps loudly and burst in to the living room.

Chapter Six: Maddie
Madeleine James stood in front of her bedroom mirror, desperately trying to push and prod her freshly washed face into compliance. The unexpected drama that her early morning at school had brought had left her with very little time to prepare for her evening out with Jack. She couldn’t bring herself to just leave Alice crying in the corridor after breaking off possibly the most twisted and disturbing relationship that Maddie had ever encountered, despite the rocky relationship that they’d had for the past few months, so the two girls had bunked off school and spent the afternoon lying in their parents bed wearing sweats with a tub of ice cream, just like they had done when they were kids. Now here she stood, still dressed in an old tee and a pair of tatty sweatpants, hair untouched and with less than fifteen minutes left before he was due to arrive. And she couldn’t be late; she couldn’t leave Jack alone with the wrath of her father, who, despite claims that he ‘liked’ Jack, still often got caught by his youngest daughter as he glared at the teenage boy with narrowed eyes across the dining room table when he thought nobody was looking.
She let out a grunt and scraped her hair back from her face, bundling it on top of her head. It would have to do.
thought i’d just do a quick run through to save confusion seeing as it’s been so long since the last update and there are some updates queued to post over the next few days 8)
